This specialization is intended for beginning programmers who want to learn how to program Unity games using C#. The first course assumes no programming experience, and throughout the 5 courses in the specialization you'll learn how to program in C# and how to use that C# knowledge to program Unity games. The C# and Unity material in the first 4 courses in the specialization is slightly more comprehensive than the content in the first 2 game programming courses at UCCS."Unity" is a trademark or registered trademark of Unity Technologies or its affiliates in the U.S. and elsewhere.The courses i

unity Awards Best Course Overall
- The course is free and very beginner friendly. Anyone who has dreamed of developing a video game can start here.
- By focusing on a fun project, the course helps students stay enthusiastic as they begin a journey deep into computer programming and game development.
- Course does a great job of whetting appetites and priming students for further learning.
- The course does not stand alone. It is only an introduction to the 5-course series and will not teach enough by itself.
- Course brushes up against math and traditional coding. While neither are prerequisites, students with absolutely no background in either will have a harder time.
- Acquiring C# console and Unity can prove prohibitive to students who are unprepared.
